Delegates from across the AYF Eastern Region came together for five days and discussed the state of our organization and set forth new goals and direction for the upcoming year. THE WASHINGTON TIMES: Obama won’t acknowledge Armenian genocide by Turkey, protesters say. Read Here: http://wtim.es/IdX7qkProtesters will use President Obama’s fundraising trip to Southern California on Tuesday to highlight his refusal to live up to a campaign promise to recognize the Armenian genocide in Turkey nearly a century ago.
Ice breakers @ AYF Junior Convention The 1st Armenian Church of North America, The Armenian Church of the Martyrs, located in Worcester, MA, is in dire need of repair & needs significant renovation in order to survive.This church, (the home church of many AYF members) is and has been the church and home for so many Armenians for over a century. Beginning in the late 1880s, it was a safe haven for many Armenians as they escaped the genocide.For more info, videos & photos, check out the Indiegogo page & where you'll be able to DONATE & SHARE: http://igg.me/at/SaveACM*Please contact our own AYF member, U. Talin Avakian of the AYF Worcester "Aram" Chapter for more info on how to help out.

Armenian ‘orphan rug’ is in White House storage, as unseen as genocide is neglectedGreat Article by the Washington Post Read here: http://wapo.st/15YMgtm"There was hope that the carpet, which has been in storage for almost 20 years, might be displayed Dec. 16 as part of a @Smithsonian event that would include a book launch for Hagop Martin Deranian’s “President Calvin Coolidge and the Armenian Orphan Rug.” But on Sept. 12, the Smithsonian scholar who helped organize the event canceled it, citing the White House’s decision not to loan the carpet." Sardarabad Bookstore donated these maps to participants of AYF's Tri-Regional Seminar where ungers from Canada, East Coast, and West Coast toured the Pasadena Armenian Center, Montebello Monument, Western Region Central Offices, and AYF Camp Big Pines. Lectures included homeland programs (U Stepan Keshishian), AYF Camp (Tamar Yardemian Baboujian), ANCA regarding HyeVotes and advocacy (Tereza Yerimyan), ARF (U Vicken Hovsepian), Social and Political Issues in Armenia (U Mourad Topalian), People's Movement in Armenia & Conflicting Policies (U Giro Manoyan, ARF Bureau Political Affairs Director), 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide (U Vicken Sosikian).

And very rarely do tourists get a true, in-depth glimpse of what the country is all about. The best way to experience the real Armenia is to live there, work there, and even play there; not just visit tourist attractions for a week or two. The AYF Internship program exposes Diasporans to that real Armenia, and gives them the chance to fall in love with its beauty and hospitality, and even its flaws and imperfections.So if you want to fall in love with Armenia, where you'll drink its waters and climb its mountains, all while lending a helping hand, then it's time to apply for the 2013 AYF Internship in ArmeniaApply today.Application deadline: April 1.Visit www.ayf.org/programs/internship to apply.

Yesterday, the world lost a wonderful man. Mal Varadian was not only a role model to his family and friends, but he also touched the lives of countless others, including AYFers. He was a staple of the Providence community, yet his name elicits strong emotions anywhere it’s spoken. Uncle Mal was a leader, a listener and an influential man to many of us. We appreciate and honor everything he has done for the AYF, and we know his impact will continue to be felt for many years to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. Rest in peace, Mal Varadian. We thank you for all you’ve done. We'll keep making it better than it was.

On January 14, 1933, the Armenian Youth Federation was born.On this date, 79 years ago, the ARF Central Committee of America decided to unify existing youth groups scattered across the country and build the groundwork for a national Armenian youth organization.The legendary Armenian hero General Karekin Njdeh was soon invited to the US to serve as a fieldworker to mobilize the communities around the idea of a consolidated youth movement. He toured the country from city to city, town to town, encouraging the masses to join the ranks of the soon to be established AYF. With his magnetic oratory and inspirational presence, hundreds of youth flocked to hear his appeals and apply to become part of the first generation of the AYF.79 տարիներ առաջ ծնաւ Հայ Երիտասարդաց Դաշնակցութիւնը: Այսօր, ՀՅԴ Երիտասարդական Միութիւնները կը գործեն Հայաստանի եւ արտերկրի 17 երկրներու մէջ, ինչպէս` Լիբանան, ԱՄՆ, Գանատա, Արգենտինա, Ֆրանսա, Յունաստան, Ռուսաստան, Կիպրոս եւ այլուր: Կեցցէ՛ Դաշնակցական Երիտասարդութիւնը Գարեգին Նժդեհ - Garegin Njdeh We would like to announce the formation of the AYF South Florida "Arev" Chapter!
